WOW! Who knew that learning about water resources in Arizona and  could be so fun!

Students change aerator on school bathroom faucet.

Students will audit fixtures, make recommendations to save water, install high efficiency devices on water fixtures, and communicate their findings and message.

Rainwater harvesting

Harvesting the rain to help save potable water!


AquaSTEM riparian habitat exploration

Students explore Arizona’s amazing riparian areas and investigate, using scientific methods, the health of the system, utilizing data collection tools, some of which they will engineer themselves.
